Building Momentum: Extending the Life of a New Musical

March 8, 2019

New York, NY

Navigating a new musical through a world premiere is a huge feat for writers and producers. But what happens after the first production? Join NAMT writers and producers from NAMT member organizations to discuss leveraging a world premiere into a second production and beyond. At the 2019 Writers’ Roundtable we will explore how to build a relationship roadmap for all stages of development and production, collaboration strategies among multiple producing organizations, and technology developments for extending the reach of a new musical.
